I'm sick of close as well.

Pressures are awesome but if he can't turn into an elite sack artist, the trade up was not warranted.

Did you not watch Davenport last week vs Dallas? Effectively setting the edge. He had 9 hurries on Dak Bortles and an effective bull rush on an All Pro tackle who literally held him most of the second half. Davenport is a monster.

Not sure which games you've been watching.

Oh I'm not saying he's a bust. Far from it.

I am saying that he needs to set the world on fire to make giving up 2 first round picks in order to draft him was worth it.

We pushed around one of the best o-lines in football last week. I bet nobody is questioning this pick now. We have great exterior and interior D-linemen. We have at the very least one of the top 5 d-lines in football(I think that's underrating it). I look forward to turning Winston into crab paste.

You are acting like those two first rounders were high first rounders. They were both near the very bottom and were turned into an upper half of the first. Value wise according to the chart we came close to coming out even.

Do you even watch games? Serious question. The past two weeks he's made his presence regardless of stats. Smith held him numerous times last week without any holding calls that were blatant.

He never left. Davenport has been solid Day 1. Only a minor injury held him back in 2018.

4 games into the season, 4 solid performances thus far.

Solid draft pick and worth whatever the Saints front office did to go get him.

Glad he's on my team.
